Since I was feeling pretty good after Oliver’s delivery, I decided to take his newborn photos myself, with the help of my mom for safety. I definitely need to make some boy hats, and get some more props, but overall, I think they turned out great!
This is a composite photo (two photos in one). I’m so excited that I was able to pull it off! I had my mom hold the top of his head for the first photo, and his arms for the second. Then I put the two photos together, and this was the result!
Wearing his daddy’s tie.
His nursery is elephant themed with gray, light blue, and white as the colors, so I wanted to incorporate that into the photo shoot. Once I finish his nursery, I’ll post pictures!
One of my favorites! I bought this Tonka truck for Grayson for Christmas knowing that I could also use it as a newborn prop.
It has been so great having my very own newborn baby to practice my photography on! I know, eventually, he’ll get tired of having a camera in his face, just like his brother, but for now I’m going to enjoy it while I can!
Here’s a bonus picture of my big boy, Grayson, with my mom (his Nana) taken just a couple days before he became a big brother.
